Happy Travel Tuesday!
It’s time for bucket list time! One of my favorite things.
Even though we are trying to see as much of Europe as we can (in fact, we just came back from Berlin…although primarily there for our visa interview, we squeezed in some exploring! Check out some photos on my instagram), I also want to see as much as possible of this lovely little country we are currently calling home, the Czech Republic.
I’m still learning about more places every day, but here’s a start! If you know of any more, I’m always looking for new suggestions!
One of my students has mentioned this castle to me a few times, calling it the most beautiful in the Czech Republic; then, last week, after seeing Tina’s post, I can’t help but think I really need to visit! I love the black roof–it looks so dramatic and castley.
I’ve already visited the lovely little Český Krumlov, and I really fell hard for this little medieval town. I hope to see it in every season, if possible. I hear it’s amazing in the winter, but I have a feeling this place is amazing year-round.
This spa town is strangely not popular with Czechs (because it’s full of “Russians” I’m told…) but it is certainly a popular international destination. It looks beautiful, and I always am willing to try gross water that’s supposed to have incredible healing powers!
I have to visit the infamous bone church before I leave the Czech Republic. I’ve also heard that the church has foundational issues, so it may be dismantled this year. Since no one seems to be sure how it was made, it might not get put back up…so I guess you should see it this year, too!
Last weekend we visited South Moravia, or Czech wine country, and I originally wanted to stay in Pavlov. We ended up staying in Mikulov, because Pavlov was completely booked (it’s a small town!). Mikulov was a nice town, but I still want to go back and stay in Pavlov. I like smaller towns, and this is still wine country, with the addition of ancient ruins. These are a few of my favorite things… (sing in the way of Julie Andrews, if you’d like).
I have a confession to make: I don’t actually like Pilsner Urquell, the ultimate Czech beer (and definitely the most famous). I prefer dark beers and it just doesn’t taste that spectacular to me. However, I still would like to see how its made and visit its hometown!
This little town is supposed to be one of the cutest in the Czech Republic, and maybe even in Europe. I am instantly sold on anything that’s supposed to be that cute!
This past weekend in Berlin solidified my desire to visit Terezin, a concentration camp from World War II near Prague. It won’t be the most fun visit ever (as it shouldn’t be), but I think it is important to see this part of history.
While this town isn’t known much outside of the Czech Republic, the students we worked with at English Camp were from here and invited us to visit. We’ll be going in January for their graduation prom! (Whatever that is…I haven’t quite figured it out yet).
